Featured Series - The Moth Saga

The Moth Saga
Daniel Arenson


They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars.

That was a long time ago.

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid... and alone in the dark.

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

We are in darkness. We are alone.

They came from the lands of light. They came with torches, with lanterns, with the banners of the sun. The children of endless day—they came to banish the darkness.

And they came to kill.

We are the children of never-ending night. We are the dwellers of shadow. In the light of our enemy, we are dying.

We were born in darkness. We must cast out the light. This is our story.

Our world is broken. Our people are torn.

The sun no longer rises. Evening no longer falls. In the lands of endless sunlight, we fear the darkness, we forge swords, we march to war. In the shadows of eternal night, we hide, we pray, we die. Soldiers of sunlight and children of darkness--we were once one. We were torn apart. We must be one again.

We are the people of Moth. Our world must once more turn.

Featured Book - American Sniper

American Sniper
The Autobiography of the 
Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History
Chris Kyle

A celebration of the remarkable life and legacy of fallen American hero Chris Kyle
This commemorative memorial edition of Kyle's bestselling memoir features the full text of American Sniper, plus more than eighty pages of remembrances by those whose lives he touched personally—including his wife, Taya; his parents, brother, and children; Marcus Luttrell and other fellow Navy SEALs; veterans and wounded warriors; lifelong friends; and many others.

He was the top American sniper of all time, called "the legend" by his Navy SEAL brothers, and a hero by those he served on the home front . . .

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle's masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the greatest war memoirs of all time.
A native Texan who learned to shoot on childhood hunting trips with his father, Kyle was a champion saddle-bronc rider prior to joining the Navy. After 9/11, he was thrust onto the front lines of the War on Terror, and soon found his calling as a world-class sniper who performed best under fire. He recorded a personal-record 2,100-yard kill shot outside Baghdad; in Fallujah, Kyle braved heavy fire to rescue a group of Marines trapped on a street; in Ramadi, he stared down insurgents with his pistol in close combat. Kyle talks honestly about the pain of war—of twice being shot, and experiencing the tragic deaths of two close friends.

American Sniper also honors Kyle's fellow warriors, who raised hell on and off the battlefield. And in moving first-person accounts throughout, Kyle's wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their marriage and children, as well as on Chris.
Adrenaline-charged and deeply personal, American Sniper is a thrilling eyewitness account of service and sacrifice that only one man could tell.

New Release - Spy for Hire

Dan Mayland


A kidnapped orphan triggers an intelligence war in the Middle East, catapulting top-spy Mark Sava into a desperate race against friend and foe alike.

Azerbaijan didn’t want him. And now Kyrgyzstan may not be able to handle Mark Sava either. The ex–CIA station chief has settled into a new, easy life as a spy for hire. But then his girlfriend, Daria, discovers the private intelligence agency employing Sava is connected to a strange plot involving a mysterious orphan.

As Saudi intelligence agents and the CIA seek out the boy for their own ends, Sava and Daria call on old friend and ex–Navy SEAL John Decker to protect the child while they dig for the truth. Soon Sava has a front-row seat to a black ops war between the CIA, US Naval Intelligence, and foreign forces—and the boy is somehow the key to victory. Sava just wants to find the child a good home, but can he do so before his own broken past proves his undoing?

Ender’s Game - The Game to End All Games

Ender's Game

Based on the book, Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card

Rated PG-13
Runtime: 114 min
Starring:  Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, and Hailee Steinfeld

I rented this movie from Amazon Prime.  When I first saw the movie it was the presence of Harrison Ford that drew me in.  He’s one of my all time favorite actors.

Ender’s Game is based on the book by the same title written by Orson Scott Card.  The book won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards.  It is now on my To Be Read list.  I can only imagine the depth the book covers that doesn’t translate well to the big screen.

Orson Scott Card has written five in the series and I believe this is just the first story in the series.  If they make more movies I will be watching them.  Yet, the story is so well done it is open for sequels and stands alone very well.

In the movie we find ourselves thrust into a futuristic world where the government is breeding and training children to be soldiers.  They are in search of the one that will “save us all” from the bug like race, the Formics.

The main focus of Ender’s Game is walking us through Ender’s trials as he makes his way up the ranks toward battle school. The movie touches on Ender’s relationship with his sadistic brother, Peter, who didn’t make the cut for being a soldier and Ender’s sister Valentine, who holds a special place in Ender’s heart.  She didn’t make the cut either.  The reasons for his siblings no longer being in the program are not explained very well in the movie, but it doesn’t seem central to the movie plot.  (This is something I’d read the books for.)

All in all, I really liked this movie.  I’d recommend this for your older kids, thirteen and up, because it probably won’t hold the attention of the younger ones.
